There are a few ways to get into the castle. The straight-forward way is to

If you miss the truck, just walk up to the castle with an unstealthy

A more interesting approach is to sneak up the road to the next archway and

it's a case
of working your way around the perimeter of the castle. There's a tricky

far end of a small courtyard with a fountain. There's a small flight of

Thank the sleeping guard for his level 1 security pass (I slipped a £10
inside his jacket) and head to the left of the control tower. Jump the rail
ahead of you
and enter the 'Control Tower Administration' door on your left.
I'm afraid this is a section where you need to look after your stealth. I
have an issue
with mental stealth, but let's not go there. There is a T-junction ahead of
you. To the
left is a guard that you can safely send to sleep with your dart pen, to the
right is a
security camera. Security cameras are no problem if they are looking in
or if you run underneath them to gather your breath.
*Handy Hint* Using the lean/peer keys (default '1' and '3') allows you to
watch a camera
without the worry of it spotting you.
There's nothing of interest in the offices located at the left of the

When the camera allows, run to the door and hit active/use on the access

the game with respect to various hardware. Give it several attempts,

violent manner. You may choose to ascend the crates on your right and

There are two doors available to you now. The 'Primary Aircraft Hangar' door
won't open, so
head for the unlabelled door that leads to the 'Aircraft Parts Storage Yard'

Apart from the ammo boosts, there are two exits from Mayhew's bunker. You
can go back the
way you came or explore the bunker for a ladder leading to a switch to open
a manhole exit.
The order in which you tackle the mission is up to you, but the majority of
your work can be
found by going back the way you came. Open the manhole lever (this is
important), but return

If you stick to the left, the two cameras on the right will not bother you.
